An armed “gang” was arrested after doing the Mannequin Challenge with guns, according to a new report and video that has been floating around on Facebook. Two men, Kenneth White (49) and Terry Brown (23) were arrested in Huntsville, Alabama at around 5 a.m. on Tuesday after police raided the house where it was filmed.
From Daily Mail: “The video, which shows 19 people – most with guns – posing in a freeze-framed ‘shootout’, was posted on the Facebook profile of Hailey Nichols on November 9. It has since received more than four million views. Among those viewers were Madison County Sheriff’s Office investigators, who were sent the video by a concerned citizen.”
Police say they discovered the house was being used to sell weed during their investigation into the video and decided to raid it. “The raid this morning saw the door being busted in and Kenneth White, 49, and Terry Brown, 23, being arrested. There were four others inside, including kids, cops said. Items recovered included two handguns, an assault rifle, an older single-barrel shotgun, an attack vest, multiple packs of marijuana, ammunition, magazines for the assault rifle and a computer,” Daily Mail reports.
White was charged with first-degree possession of marijuana and certain persons forbidden to possess a firearm, since he’s a felon. Brown caught charges for possession of drug paraphernalia, loitering, and promoting prison contraband.
